My wife and I took our son to Birdsong for a weekend and had a fantastic time. Unfortunately the weather was not in our favor but that did not change our opinion of the place.
We will definitely return someday.
We used Birdsong cottage as our base for our visit to Hermanus. The cottage is situated about 8km out of Hermanus in the suburb of Vermont. Large and very well equipped, the cottage sits in nice grounds with a very large lake to the rear. The owner Lyn was prompt to answer and queries we had and supplied all the information needed to make our stay a very comfortable one. I would think that this is a Bird spotters paradise (we were in Hermanus to watch Whales, not Birds) I would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to someone.
belated review however i cannot recommend this house highly enough. we stayed for 2 nights in Oct 15 as 2 families with children aged 1 - 12 and it was perfect. the house is comfortable and well equipped. the view when the sunsets is exceptional. our friends loved it so much they have already returned. booking and check-in and departure was very smooth. would love to return.
Our experience from start to finish at the Birdsong Cottage was amazing. We were a group of 7 adults and we were so warmly greeted on arrival. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. It was a joy to prepare meals. The view from the patio was breathtaking and we had many relaxing meals together outside. Everything was clean and move in ready for us to enjoy. We were so sad to leave and would have liked to have stayed a while longer. We definitely recommend Birdsong Cottage to anyone who is considering it for a relaxing stay.
I love renting houses on the water and this one did not disappoint. The house had a terrific view of the mountains, if you like birdlife there is lots to see including pink flamingoes and it is so lovely and peaceful. My family were really pleased with this choice and if I was in the area again I would happily rent this house. It was also clean and well equipped.
